You know we belong together. Come back to the bay, we’re waiting for you. Over the past thirty years, around one tenth of the flamin’ mongrels living in Summer Bay have died, most under suspicious circumstances. Strewth!

In this grotesque lo-fi conspiracy extravaganza, come and holiday with eclectic performance artist Daley Rangi on a sunny tour bus to the menacing heart of darkness. Turn off your television, because the Australian dream was always a nightmare.

Part 1 – Hunter (30 minutes)

Intermission (15 minutes)

Part 2 – Hunted (30 minutes)


The Summer Bay Homicides is developed with the assistance of Giant Dwarf Theatre supported by the Neil Hendry & Jean-Claude Niederer Giant Developments Fund.

Daley Rangi (Te Ātiawa) is an eclectic multidisciplinary Māori artist generating unpredictable and uncomfortable works. A proud advocate for neurodiversity and bodily integrity, they evade categorisation and invade the status quo. Daley spends their energy intensely focusing on speaking truth to power, nurturing marginalised voices, and encouraging social change. They create participatory live performance, write plays and poetry, and paint self-portraits and mountains.

  • This work contains depictions of violence, coarse language, loud noises, and smoke. It is currently in development, and is likely to explore disturbing content influenced by lived experience, such as racism, sexism, ableism, and queermisia.
